How Effective Onboarding Boosts Your Bottom line — SHRM & HRCI Credits

There is a lot more to onboarding than collecting all the required paperwork, handing out an office key and taking the new hire out to lunch. In recent years, some employers have started to realize the impact that effective onboarding process design can have on the bottom line. Today, in order to attract and retain top talent, employers must move beyond traditional onboarding and use technology to effectively and securely address the entire employee experience. This means not only captivating new hires, but also seizing the opportunity to engage existing employees and managers through collaborative process development, an engaging user interface and a secure technology protocol.

Three HR MegaTrends You Can’t Ignore — SHRM & HRCI Credits

For years, HR has asked for a seat at the table. Today, we’re being thrust into the lead role. Join Dr. Conrad as he reveals three pivotal forces that will transform the role HR plays in the near-term future of work. First, as the pace of change accelerates and adds to worker overload, a concentrated focus on well-being at work is needed to make work less stressful and more fulfilling for people—emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically. In addition, as the Fourth Industrial Revolution emerges, preparing people for the future of work—via reskilling and upskilling people for a blended workforce of people and machines—will be paramount to developing and driving individual and organizational performance. Finally, as the Internet of Things advances the democratization of data and decisions, creating the new connected collaborative enterprise is a must to improve the digital employee experience. It’s HR’s time to shine. Are you ready?

We are experiencing a seismic shift in technological advancement that will forever change the human experience.

From Pushing Paper to Pushing People

In HR, we push a lot of paper. We have performance forms, discipline forms, benefit forms, onboarding forms, forms, forms, forms. The forms were purported to make things easier, to gather the information we need to make decisions or reflected the decisions themselves. But are we getting too reliant on the forms and forsaking the kind of human interactions our employees want and need? Let’s chat about breaking down the bureaucracy of HR and how to encourage conversation
